Me: What kind of a question is that!?!

Gotta get out of the house. Gotta get out of the house! FLAAAAAIIIIIL!!!

I have so much to do, yet I’m bored out of my mind. Gotta get out of the house.

Does anyone know what the German word “sprachkenntnisse” means? I have to know if I’m being complimented or insulted.

I’ve got to admire The Onion. When I saw the link in Ann’s blog, I expected them to make fun of the whole event. Well, they did so, but very, very tastefully. Go read some of the articles.

I’m so amused. I have no idea how this happened, but when you look at the results from my poll, the word “gambling” becomes a link to some online casino. This is too amusing for words.

The Moulin Rouge DVD comes out December 18th. I know what *I* want for Christmas!

New poll. It’s stupid, but so was the last one. And the last one was up WAY too long.
